GICA and the Coalition for College Cost Savings (CCCS) are proud to offer a partnership with CastleBranch, a nationwide provider of background screening services for colleges and universities.  This national contract provides a significant cost savings for GICA member institutions because of the combined purchasing power of 28 member Associations, across 26 states, representing over 650 private colleges.

CastleBranch provides more than 1600 colleges and universities nationwide with a full spectrum of products including criminal and sex offender records, student immunization record management, random and on-site drug testing, student admissions pre-requisite verification, credit and social security reports, employment and education verifications and professional licensure certification.

GICA consolidates the purchasing power of our 25 private, not-for-profit campuses in Georgia to provide GICA members the option of purchasing select products at a discount. To defray administrative costs, GICA may receive a modest amount under some agreements made with the companies in the GICA procurement program.

If you are interested in more information regarding GICA procurement program agreements, please contact Lisa Macke, Director of Member Services, at (404) 233-5433 x24.
